Burt County Fair Kick-off Huge Success


By Mary Loftis

Extension Assistant

The Burt County Fair Foundation Fundraiser was held Saturday evening, February 28 in Tekamah. It was well attended by a wonderful group of supporters from across the county.

The evening was made up of a delicious meal, silent and live auctions, entertainment by comedian and ventriloquist Wayne Francis and a dance with Bill Skinner providing the music.

The fundraiser was a huge success again…the best yet, thanks to the continued generous support of the bidders, buyers and all the donors.

During the event the Fair Foundation announced plans for their next big fundraising effort. They are planning a new building on the fairgrounds which will replace the current Ag Hall for open class exhibits and vendor booths.  The dates of the 2015 Burt County Fair are August 7-11 in Oakland.

Don’t Let it Go!


Don’t let your opportunity to attend the “Frozen” 4-H achievement event go without at least putting up a good snowball fight! This fun and rewarding event is this Sunday, January 11 at the Oakland Auditorium, but we need to hear from you by Friday, January 9 so we have enough pizza! Call the Extension office (374-2929) to let us know how many from your family are planning to attend.

The afternoon will begin at 4:00 p.m. with FROZEN Fun Family Activities! We’ll have a snowman building contest (inside), have “snowball fights” and a multitude of frozen fun activities. At 4:45 we will give out 4-H Member & Leader Awards followed by a 5:30 pizza dinner. Everyone is invited to attend and a list of 4-H members and leaders who will be receiving awards went out with the 4-H newsletter. If you and your family would like to check out the Burt County 4-H program, please plan to attend, we’d love to have you join in on the fun.

 

Burt County 4-H FFA Market Beef Weigh Day

Saturday, January 24 is the date for the Burt County Market Beef weighing. Johnnie Johnson will again host the event in his HEATED barn area on the farm at 1340 County Road E, Craig, NE. Weighing will be done from 8:30-11:00 a.m. DNA sampling will again be done again if you wish to show at State Fair and/or Ak-Sar-Ben. The cost will be $6.00 per sample. Ak-Sar-Ben exhibitors will have the opportunity to show their market animal in a “Breed” class as specified in the premium book. When DNA is being collected this breed information needs to be documented on the DNA envelope. This should go on the line that has “Calving Date” under it. This information is only needed if the exhibitor is interested in showing their animal in a breed class.

If you cannot make the Burt County Weigh Day please call the Extension Office at 402-374-2929 to find alternate dates in other counties.

 

Burt County Fair Foundation Kickoff Event

The Burt County Fair Foundation will again host a Fair Kickoff/Fundraiser Event using the theme “Forever in Blue Jeans.” The event will be Saturday, February 28 and it will be held in the Tekamah Auditorium. Tickets are now on sale at the Extension office in Burt County and many local banks! Get yours now so you don’t miss out on the fun!
